That finnex Elite sounds pretty cool.. But I can't find any "official" info about it. How long is it supposed to be until it's released?

And yea, Picasso only uses the best quality materials to build their setups. I was told all the tanks are made of real glass, which really bumps up the prices. I supposedly get 5% commission on anything over $300 I sell. Not sure how often that'll happen though!

The thread Brookster posted.

Lowe (finned TPT representative) mentions it.

You think the new finnex won't be as nice as BML?

Probably not as high PAR but the BMLs do seem like overkill to me. More gadgets though, except it doesn't have the dimmable part like the BML.

It's not overkill when you have a tall tank!

New Otos I guess this is good evidence that they're eating well! It's like a poop hula hoop. I call it.. The poopa hoop

I woke up, checked AA and saw this. Going back to bed.
Congrats on the new Otos! That does look like a positive sign.

Really? You think a picture of an oto pooping will win? Seems like they'd be inclined to pick something more elegant.

Ok maybe not. But the theme is "something special".

My feisty girl

Not having much luck with the DHG carpet so far... But my CO2 being out for 5 days and no place being able to refill it isn't helping.

Wish list:
5lb CO2 cylinder
BML Dutch 6300k

Ok guys, update!
So I've recently gotten into saltwater, and my 36bf has kinda gone downhill. I've gotten this brown fluffy algae all over EVERYTHING.
http://i1277.photobucket.com/albums/...pslyk7z4av.jpg
Plus, I can't get my Rotala to grow straight upwards..
And I think my GBR has internal parasites. She's gotten really thin and lost her color. At first I thought it was because I was being a little negligent about feeding good quality food (my usual frozen rotation), but even after restarting this routine, she remains thin and colorless :/
http://i1277.photobucket.com/albums/...psqhadx2hy.jpg
Anyone confirm my suspicions? And how can I treat it?
